My Childhood's Home.
My childhood's home,
Around thee wreaths of love are twining,
O'er me the star of mem'ry's shining,
As far, I roam.
A cottage fair,
Half-hlid in locusts wild and blooming,
Above, no cloeds of sorrow looming,
No fell despair.
A flowered dell,
Where in theiBummer's golden morning,
With garland's gay, ny hair adorning,
I loved to dwell.
A smiling %ale,
As green as Eden in its springing,
The fragrant. air with music ringing
O'er hill and dale.
At early dawn,
When I irds their matin hymns were chant
Bre sunbeams through the boughs fell
Upon the lawn,
I frolicked wild
lIy ringlets on the breezes flowing,
)iy face with ruddy health all glowing
A gleesome child.
At. brilliant noon,
Within the woodland blithely playing,
Or by the murm'ring streamlet straying.
I tripped alone.
bly busy brain,
Was full of cheerful fancy-weaving,
Iy spirit free frcm all uphbaving,
Of hopeleis pain.
At set of sun,
I ceased my idle, careless roaming,
And in the weird and darksome gloaming,
Forgot tuy fun.
While starlight clear.
Was silvery radiance tlining,
And vesper bells were softly ringing,
Upon the air.
Beside the hearth,
My mother fair sat. sweetly smiling,
My father's neary heart beguiling,
With gentle mirth.
In cradle near,
Her hair with golden lustre gleaming,
Her eyes with azure ieauties beaming,
Was baby dear.
My ehildhood's home,
To thee my thronging thoughts are t urning,
And rising hope is dimly burntng,
Beyond the glo nt.
Oh! hallowed spot,
Whose loc, t gay and green are flow'ring,
The cottage in their saide embow'ring,
Are ne'er forgot.
The Fatal Test.
One night, while seated with some
friends, the subj -ot of courage came
up for discussion, and divers were the
opinions advanced as to what it truly
was, and what would be a proper test
to prove the true metal from the
false. The argument waked warm,
and twelve o'clock found us far from
Albert O'Brien, a scion of the
Emerald Isle, had been particularly
boastful, and longed for the chanae
to have his Milesian bravery put to
the test, boldly avowing that no Eng.
lishman ever possessed one tithe of
the disregard for danger that belong.
ed to his warmer blooded brothers.
This was, of course, denied ; and
Frank Leslie, a Hampshire youth, cold
and passionless, strenguously mnaintai's

Mbilesian was like gunpowder-a flash,
and nothing u-ore-a furious sound,
ending in smoke ; while that of the
Englishman was like the thrice heat.

* ~ 'I dare do anything that you dare,'
replied Albert, his anger getting the
Letter of his judgment.
'Dare you ? WVe will see, my boy.
WVait hero, all of you, until I return.'
Anid F'rank took his hat antd disap
WVe heard his firm atep upon the
* stairs-heard him open the door, and
saw his tall form a moment in the
street. Then it was lost to usn, for
night was intensely dark and stormy.
The rain swept round the cornerd t
gusts, amnd the wind fairly rattled the.
* windows and howled down the chime
noy. It was just the night to make
one think of ghostg-th~e dead--every.
thing that the soul shrinks from om.
munioni or fellowship with.
I knew not if other -mindas dwelt
upon such themes as mine dlid ; .but
certainly a apell appeared to- halve
fa)Ien upon .1ll,-for' &ilence toot the
place of noisy discnssion, and the
room that a few moments before had
rang with loud debate, was as undis
turbod as the tomb. A half whisper,
'1 wonder where he has gone 11 were
the only words spoken until Frank re.
turned, shook the sleety drops from his
person, coolly took his seat, lighted
his pipe, and renewed the conversa
tion with ar air of perfect unconcern.
'I have fulfilled mny part of the con
tract, now fulfil yours,' he said.
' Well, what have you done 1
where have you been 1' questioned
Albert, still defiant.
'You know, all of you, the vault in
the old church-yard on the opposite.
corner-you know it, for we were in it
this very morning, and remarked the
peculiar maniner in which the coffins
had been placed. They form, as you
will remember, three sides of a square
the fourth being the door at the foot
of the steps. Well, I have been
there-have crawled down the long
steps-entered the vault in all its
darkuoss and fanciful horrors-walked
to the extreme end, and placed my
watch and chain on the pile of decay
ed coffins there.You go bring it, Albert
- alone-without a light-as I have
done, and I will own that you, are as
brave as an Eulglishman."
A thrill of horror-a sickening,
chilling sensation, took possession of
us all as we fully drank in the purport
of his slowly uttered, carefully
measured words ; and every eye was
turned upon the Irishman, to mark
the effect upon him. Truly he was
like marble I Every drop of the rud
dy blood that usually glowed beneath
his soft obeeks had been driven back
to his heart, and he stood like one
entranced. That he was nerving
himself for the task, I plainly saw ;
and that his entire nature shuddered
at the bare thought of going alone
and in darkness into the mouldy
abode of the ancient dead, was
egually plain to me. Nothing but
his pride kept him from at once con
feasing his fear ; and well indeed
would it have been if even that had

awake myself and cowpanions from
the dreadful nightmare atr-: had
seixed every heart in its icy clutches.
'1-shall-go-and-see 1' was the re
ply from the ashy lips that almost re
fused to do their offlice.
'Tou shall not! It is horrid-dread

'Cowards, all 1' retorted Frank,
refilling his'pipe, and watching us
with his cold tron-gray eyes.
'You might call me a coward till
dooms-day," I replied, 'before I'd go.
It is simply a full hardy undertak
'All afraid of ghosts, as I live 1'
again taunted Frank. Albert is. a
medical student, and therefere ought
to be familiar with the dead.'
'You shall not go, Albert,' came
from half a dozen pair of lips, and as
many hands were laid upon him to
'Let me go, gentlemen. I am no
coward, and yet I will not foolishly
deny that the first thought struck me
with the utter desolatenoss of the un

slimy, mostey steps ; and then, even we
too, had clansbered over the enclosure
and were letting ourselves dowti Into
the tangled grass, when we beard a
rattling sound, a heavy fall, anid a
shriek that pierced our brains.

Preparing for War.
The Savannah Advertiser says that
the t.teamship Magoolie, on bar last
trip from New York, brought out
some twenty or wore laborers, this
installment to be further inereased
at that port to the number of one hun-i
dred men, to constitute the workig
force of Colonel Ludlow, of the Uni
ted Statea Eugineors, who will at
once couimonoe orcrations in building
extensive aid furu-idabie earthworks
and otherwise strenuathening the for.
tifleations of Fort PIlaki.
We learn that, the working plans,
which were exptoted to have aruived
ftom New York are this, are looked
for by every mail, when the force
employed will at once be dispatched
to Fort Puluski. From what we can
glean thus far, we learn that barrroks
for the quartering of one hundred la
borers are first to be erected
outside of the fort, when the work of
throwing up extensive earthworks in
the V of the fort, will be at onde
commenced. Gun. of fifteen inch
calibre are to be mounted, but the
number we could not ascertain.
The work, aside from the equip.
ments, is to cost $26,000, and it is
surmised that, in view of the present
aspect of affAirs especially the com
plications with Spain, showing a
problem of no easy solution, the work

We hear 'that orders have been
issued for the overhauling of the bat
teries at Charleston, involving vast
changes aud large amounts of money,
and that a general preparation for
possible war will be made.

An Involuntary Deserter.
During one of Napoleon's remark&..
r ble campaigns a detaohment of a corps
commanolod by D.avoust, occupied the
B Isle of Ilugen, which, they were to
- etocuate. They embarked with such
D preoipitation that they forgot one of
% their sentinels, who was posted in a
r retired spot, so deeply aborbed in the
a perusal of a newspaper containing an
I account of one of the Emperor's splon.
f did victories as to be tttally uncon.
scious of their departure. After go
> ing to and fro for many hours upon
t his post he lost patience and return
t ed to the guard-room, which he found
eMpty. On inquiry, he learned with
despair what had happened and cried:
"Alas, alas I I shall be looked upon
as a deserter ; dishonored, lost, un
happy wretch that I am." Ills
lamentations excited the compassion of
a worthy tradesman, who took him to
his house, 41d all in his power to con
sole him, taught him to make broad,
for he was a baker, and after some
months gave him his only daughter,
Justine, in marriage.
Five years afterward a stranger sail
was seen to approach the island.
The inhabitants flocked to the beach,
and soon discovered in the advancing
party a number of soldiers wearing
the uniform of the 'Frenoha army.
"I'm done for now-nWy bread is bak
ed," cried th. dismayed husband of
Justine. An idea, however, sudden.
ly occurred to him and revived his
courage. He ran to the ho use, sllpp.
ed into his uniform, and seizing his
fire.look, returned to the beach and
postod himself as sentry at the mo
ment the French. were landing. "Who
goes there " he cried. in a voice like
thunder. "Who goes thero, yourself?'"
replied one in the boat. "Vho are
you ?" "A sentinel." "How long
have you been on guard here I"
"Five years," rejoined our man.
Davoust laughed at his quaint reply,
and gave a dischargo in due form to
his involuntary deserter.
Stagnant Water and 1llk.
It has been known for a long time
that milk left standing in a room
where patients are sick becomes per

spread through milk, by reason of per.

ing to the labor of the dairy. The
kind of grass or fodder on which the
cows feed also gives a peouliar flayor
and quality to their milk. In addi,
tion to these facts, Is has recently
been demonstrated that the most
startling consequences may ensue
from the animals drinking stagnant
water. Professor Law, of Cornell
University, has examined, with a
microsoope, milk of an unusual, ropy
appearance, and found it full of those
fungi, or vegetable organisms, that
abound in stagnant water. Ou inqui.
ry, he found that the cows from which
it came had only stagnant water to
drink, and further investigation re
vealed the fact that the blood of the
animals teemed with these fungi, and
that the cows were in a feverish, un
healty condition, The warning which
this discovery ought to convey is very
siuple. It is the duty of dairymen
to see that their eattle have a bupply
of pure, sweet water. They use suc~h
a great gq~antity of water that a judi
cious concern for the health of the
.Jommunity should induce them to
emplloy none but thme very cleanest.
The State governments in the
South, according to Congressman
Voorhees, are "unparalleled in their
infanmy, and their ignorance." The
worst of it is, there is entirely too

the South cannot be expectei to make
either a wise or a prudent legislator;
